On behalf of the organizing committee, we'd like to invite you to participate in the workshop entitled "Biophysics and Biochemistry of Motor Proteins", that will take place from August 27 to September 1, 2000 in Banff, Alberta, Canada, nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

This meeting will provide a multidisciplinary forum for discussions on the biophysics and biochemistry of motor proteins. Lectures and communications will be given by leading molecular and cell biologists, biophysicists, medical scientists and pharmaceutical researchers. There will also be contributed talks and posters presented by other participants. Our goal is to generate cross-fertilization between researchers in this dynamic field of biophysical inquiry.

As with the last Banff workshop, we intend for this meeting to have a rather intimate feel and expect to limit its size strictly to 100 participants. We expect the workshop will attract a distinguished group of researchers from several fields involved in the study of motor proteins, which will come from premier scientific institutions in North America and Europe. As a result, we urge those who are interested to notify us immediately. We will add your name to the conference mailing list so that you are kept informed of developments. If you are interested in attending the workshop, please let us know at your earliest convenience, as space is limited. In addition, please let us know whether you would like to contribute a talk or make a poster presentation and please send your proposed title and abstract for your presentation. Also, please indicate whether you are a student, a post-doctoral fellow, or faculty. Further details will be posted on the conference website as they become available, including a list of invited speakers and those that have already accepted.
